With a population of 11.5 million people and 52.3% live at or below the poverty line ($3.20 USD), Haiti is the poorest country in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. Haiti continues to struggle with corruption, high unemployment rates, poor infrastructure, and inaccessible and ineffective education. BUT, they're empowering origin as the first Independent Black nation is what's always been awe-inspiring for me.
